Hi and welcome hummymoh !
Probably msn virus wasn't efficient enough . Delete it and install Microsoft Security essentials from :
Let it make a full scan of your system but even this might not be sufficient .
Download and install malwareBytes from :
Make an additional full scan with this malware killer .
Everything is free , easy and safe .

Assuming the operating system you use is windows xp and if it is, try

going to Add or remove programs by clicking on start- control panel- and then add remove programs. And on the left hand side, the third

option you will see is ADD REMOVE WINDOWS COMPONENTS, click

on it and then uncheck the msn check box and proceed by clicking

next and then finish it and RESTART your machine. Once restarted, go

back to add remove programs and then click on windows components

and check the box for msn messenger as it was before and complete

the task by clicking next and then see if messenger works fine.

Please reply back if it worked.

Now before you do anything else, go to Control Panel and then to User Accounts and Put off the User Account Control. Then restart your PC. If the msn is already running, then right-click the taskbar and go to 'Task Manager' and then to processes and look for it there and terminate it. Now go to Program Files and then to 'msn live messenger'. Open the folder and delete as many files as you can (some may not go). Try renaming and changing the extension (e.g take away the .dll extension) of the files that will not delete. The ones that will change, delete them. If you still have some files in there, log off or restart and then go there again and rename the main msn folder itself and delete it. Now go to progams in control panel and try to uninstall it and it will ask if it should be removed from the list since it is not valid anymore. That all, you are done.

Hope this is helpful. All the best.

How to remove msn

I take it that you don't wish to use MSN for internet access. You can delete it from your network connections window.
Then you will have to set up a connection that will use either dial-up or some form of high-speed connection. That will become your default connection.

To unistall, go into control panel, then "add and remove programs", then click "add/remove windows components". From here you can view programs like msn, and all other accessories. Untick the msn live box, and click next.

Re; msn messenger wont uninstall in control panel

You can try to do a repair from the add/remove programs. If that does not work, you can try to totally remove msn messenger from your computer and do a fresh install.
